CROWD FIRE APP for Twitter - And RE-AUTHENTICATION issue for too many unfollows?

Last Update: February 11, 2016

Hey Guys.

I've been using CrowdFireApp to manage my Twitter account on one of my sites that Twitter rocks for - the first time I've been a fan of it honestly.

Anyway, as you add people to Twitter they tend to add you too, but there are limits to the number you can add.

Supposedly (at the time of this writing... they change once in a while) after you get to 5k people YOU follow, you can then only add 10% above the number of people following you. So let's say YOU are following 5,000 people, and only 1800 are following you back, you can't add more than 180 in a day. See?

I get a good ratio of follows, but I don't want to waste time following people who aren't following me AND how do you know easily who IS following you on Twitter?

Well that's why I use the CrowdFire app. It tells you your "non-followers" and you can just go in and click click click lickity split and you're down 500 followers at a time. HOWEVER, if you do too many... and I think over 1000 MAY be too many in a day, the system thinks you're spamming and it makes you RE-AUTHENTICATE your twitter account.

Other points about the program, it let's you auto-reply to people who follow you WITHOUT having some stupid name like UNFOLLOWSPY... I think the free version occasionally says, "via CrowdFire" but the $4.99 for a year version I got doesn't seem to even do that. I think it sounds most professional of the auto-programs I've seen.

I'm still figuring out how to do the Re-Authentication, in case anyone knows, but CrowdFire told me to wait a couple of days after doing it anyway before trying to unfollow again.

Just another heads up from the Canary in the Coal Mine. -Alexx

it works as an alternative to Twitter karma?

Thanks, I didn't know about the re-authentication bit. I use CrowdFire too. My numbers are a lot more modest than yours - 343 followers right now. I've a long way to go. I hope you get Re-Authenticated without too much bother.

I'm thinking I still haven't gotten it, because as I unfollow people, they show back up the next day lol. -Alexx

Where do you unfollow them? I usually do it from inside Twitter because I want to make sure they aren't too valuable to lose. Then I usually do it in CrowdFire as well, just for my own convenience as I check further. I haven't noticed anyone showing up afterwards but I can't be certain.

I unfollow them from the Crowdfire app because it's faster. I don't judge value as you do... if they aren't following me basically they aren't valuable to me.

My problem seems to have evened out, but I've mostly been adding lately. I got swamped with work from it so had to slow down, which maybe was the lesson in all of this. ;) -Alexx
